    Abstract

    The micro-mechanical simulations of water flowthrough granular soils were discussed. A significant decrease in vertical stresses was found to be associated with buoyancy and applied upward flow and no change was observed throughout the soil sample. The analysis showed that the results of numerical simulations of water seepage through soils were consistent with experimental observations.
